How to transfer your domain from Google Domains to 20i

Here’s how to transfer your domain name to us and start saving on renewal prices.

Domains that are newer than 60 days, or have been transferred within the last 60 days can't be transferred out of Google Domains. This is due to ICANN rules to prevent fraud. If it’s after 60 days, follow this process: 

How to transfer your domain from Google Domains
  1. Log in to Google Domains
  2. Select the domain that you want to transfer
  3. Under the menu in the top left, select Registration Settings
  4. Unlock your domain under 'Domain lock' so it can be transferred

 

Then, if your domain ends with .uk:
  1. Select Transfer Out under Registration Settings
  2. Enter the IPS Tag for 20i, which is STACK, click Transfer then Accept
  3. Log in My20i, and select Transfer a Domain
  4. Enter the domain name and select Search
  5. Add the domain to your basket and complete checkout. Transfers are free, and will complete almost instantly.

 

If your domain ends in .com, .net, .org and most other domains, follow these steps:
  1. Select Get authorisation code, to the right of Transfer out
  2. Select To a different registrar and Continue, then sign in if necessary
  3. Copy the Authorisation (EPP) Code
  4. Log in My20i, and select Transfer a Domain
  5. Enter the domain name and select Search
  6. Add the domain to your basket and complete checkout
  7. There's a £6.00/$12.00 transfer fee to move the domain but don't worry, for most TLDs you'll get an extra years renewal added to the renewal totally free of charge
  8. An email will be sent - usually instantly but can take up to 6 hours - to the e-mail address listed as the Admin Contact
  9. Follow the link in this e-mail and Approve the transfer by entering the authorisation code obtained earlier
  10. Once authorized the transfer will complete automatically within 5 days
